The Thames, Runnymede, and Windsor Great Park — centuries of history. Just one significant climb, up Cooper’s Hill via the John F Kennedy Memorial, and later the glorious Long Walk, descending through the park to Windsor Castle (imagine fanfares all the way), finishing in Windsor town centre, where the constant flow (or, more frequently, stop-in-the-street logjam) of tourists ensures a wide variety of post-walk refreshments.
